Everyone is curious about the seven members of the worldwide sensation BTS and their financial situation while they serve their necessary military service. Although they will inevitably fade from public view, the fact that the members still get a steady paycheck from the South Korean government provides insight into the group’s financial dynamics when they were serving.
With the exception of Suga, every member of BTS lives in a common barracks and shares in the daily life and financial remuneration of the community living while serving in the military, where hierarchical structures prevail. Suga, conducting alternative duty at a community centre in Seoul, is not exempt from this egalitarian norm and receives the same income as his fellow conscripts.
Jin who joined the military initially, is now a Sergeant and reportedly earns the most of the seven during this time, with a monthly salary of ₩1.00 million KRW (about $775 USD and Rs64, 239.90). Furthermore, J-Hope, who is presently a Corporal, gets a monthly stipend of ₩800,000 KRW, which is approximately $620 USD and Rs51,388.16.
Based on the information that is currently available, Suga’s monthly wage as a Private is ₩680,000 KRW, which is around $527 USD. The four members of Jungkook, RM, Jimin, and V, who enlisted on December 11 and 12, are currently in the middle of their five-week basic training period and are being paid the usual trainee salary of ₩600,000 KRW (about $465USD and Rs43,679.23) every month.

A more substantial pay raise is on the horizon for V as a result of his selection to the exclusive Special Duty Team after training. In line with a planned budget increase, all BTS members can expect a 25% raise to their military earnings in 2024, which would coincide with a universal pay hike for conscripts. BTS’s song Spring Day has climbed to #2 on Music Bank.
As major shareholders of HYBE, the entertainment company that produces BTS, the members of BTS still manage to earn passive income even though they’re not actively involved in the entertainment industry. As of the stock closing price on December 21, their accumulated value was ₩100 billion KRW, or around $77.5 million USD.
Moreover, the worldwide famous group’s continued financial success throughout their military duty is highlighted by the other sources of revenue that contribute to their net worth, such as song royalties, commercial sponsorships, and record sales.
